    Brandon Griffin (#47) I believe is planning to attend Oregon State. I have heard rumors (and that is really all they are) that Jordan Rogers is considering either BSU or Oregon State as well, but I would not put much stock in those rumors.

    Mark Grey was talking in an interview and said the schools he had in mind were Cornell, Penn State, Lehigh, and Northwestern. Far from an official list, but still. He was training at a camp at Cornell this summer, and I'm sure Mike has been giving him the inside scoop on the program for the past few years, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him favoring Cornell in the end.
    Am I cool now?

    I wouldn't say that Brands is hands down the best recruiter in the nation. When he got that great class heading to V Tech (Borschel et al) that was certainly quite a recruiting job. But now that he's at the prestigious Iowa he is certainly get a lot of great recruits but I'm not sure his efforts there are superior to what Cael is doing or what Koll is doing at Cornell which has nowhere near the wrestling legacy of Iowa. I know you could argue that Koll is perhaps better at developing the recruits he gets than at actually snagging the top recruits. But, either way, he's getting a lot of talent into a school that doesn't have that history. And Cael certainly hasn't done badly in getting top national recruits the past couple of years.

    In ranking recruiters I always have Brands and Cael back to back. Cael gets recruits through the fact he is a living legend, while Brands can get people excited about watching paint dry. You could go either way in picking which is the best recruiter.

    With the monster class Ohio State is bringing in this year, will they have much money to work with to recruit anybody from the 2012 class?

    Thanks for posting Jensen! Recently I got recruiting information from quite a few of the top 100-ish recruits. Here's what I got regarding Griffin and Grey. Mind you this was before the July 1st start of the recruiting period so they may have had new teams of interest pop up.

    In no particular order

    Grey: Cornell, Nebraska, Northwestern, Lehigh, Iowa, Penn State, Oklahoma State
    Griffin: Oregon State, Lehigh, Columbia, Cornell, Virginia Tech

    I have no info at this time regarding Tsirtsis. Just spitballing but any chance he wrestles for his brother's old teammate Mark Perry at Illinois?

    Nice to see Iowa on a big timers list but hard to see Grey going anywhere but Cornell.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...
